Well, I haven't had a hysterectomy, but both my mom and my aunts have had to had them. Pre-cancerous cells in all of their cases. SOoooo... I think I probably have that to look forward to at some point. My mom had her hysterectomy at 37 (I was born when she was 35).

With my Aunt Betty she had her's at 26, but she'd already had 3 kids at that point. Her doc told her that they could just try to remove the pre-cancerous cells and treat her and do yearly checks to make sure they didn't come back. That way she wouldn't have to go through with a hysterectomy, and no longer be able to have children (She was only 26, and they thought that at 26 she might still want kids), but she was done didn't want to have to deal with the risk of it becomming full-blown cancer so she went ahead with the hysterectomy.

Mind you, my aunt is in her 60's now, so it's been quite a long while since she had her surgery! But I know that the estrogen medication they had her on for YEARS because of the histerectomy actually caused some heart problems for her, and she had a heart attack two years ago because of it (doing great now though).

hi there -
i am so sorry to hear that some many people have had to go through this
where were the pre-cancerous cells....on her cervix....
the reason i ask is because i just had a biopsy done last tuesday and i am so afraid they are going to tell me that i have cervical cancer or that the cells are so bad they have to do a hystorectomy...
i am 24 and would like to try for one more baby
good luck to you all
